With the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve spent more time indoors, devoted more energy to cooking, cleaning, indoor care, and body care (with hair salons, beauticians, and restaurants closed, unfortunately, for long periods).
One of the side effects of this way of home living is that the market for small appliances has grown in Italy. There has been, for example, a boom in sales of hair clippers (+55.8%) and food processors (+29.3%), not to mention the surge in information technology (+29.6%) with a total turnover of 2.5 billion euros (May 2020 alone saw a peak in growth of almost 50%).
Manufacturers of household appliances and electronic devices therefore found themselves having to cope with these increased demands and having to manage the production and packaging of so many products.
Even in the case of sudden peaks in production, Vuototecnica is able to guarantee the quality of industrial processes, thanks to its solutions. One of the possibilities is the Octopus vacuum gripping system.
As we’ve already seen here on the blog, Octopus has the advantage of being able to adapt to different parts (in terms of shape and heterogeneous materials), which can be of interest to such manufacturers since home appliances and electronic devices often involve the assembly of metal parts, plastic parts, small details, for which it would generally be necessary to change gripping hands every time and for which care, precision and speed are needed.
Octopus does not get lost in a thousand pieces: it allows the gripping of objects of any shape and nature, as long as they do not have excessive perspiration, without having to change or position the suction cups every time and even when their surface occupies only 5% of the entire suction surface; the maximum weight of the load to be lifted will be proportionate to the gripping surface.
In addition, Octopus can also be used during packaging and pallet creation.
It is available in different shapes, weights and sizes, so that can be installed directly on board the machines, speeding up the process and minimizing overall dimensions.
If you still don’t know which Octopus is right for you, the Vuototecnica designers prepared a questionnaire to make the task easier. All you have to do is fill it out in its entirety and send it by email for personalized assistance.
